forces who are stationed in Kabul will soon be replaced with police forces of the former government and Taliban forces and all will have uniforms, the Taliban said on Sunday.

Anaamullah Samangani, a member of the Taliban’s cultural commission, told TOLOnews that the current Taliban forces, who do not have uniforms, will be transferred from Kabul to military posts in the provinces.

Samangani, however, did not say how many police and Taliban forces will be deployed in Kabul.

"Police and uniformed forces who have received training and gained skills in their specific fields should soon take charge of maintaining Kabul security and start their jobs. After that, the Mujahideen who are stationed in different police departments and who do not have uniforms will be stationed in police headquarters and army corps (in the provinces)," Samangani said.

A number of Kabul residents, meanwhile, said uniformed forces should be deployed to the city to maintain security and to prevent criminal activity by button men identifying as Taliban.

According to the residents, people are accustomed to uniformed police and will feel more comfortable with them in the city.

The residents also said the new forces should fight criminals and restore order in the city.

"They should have a specific uniform and be well-organized in the city and maintain security so that the people will not worry," said Sheikh Zaman, a Kabul resident.

"We have seen cases where some people identifying themselves as Taliban forces have committed illegal actions in the city," said Abdurrahman, a Kabul resident.

Following the collapse of the former government in mid-August, Afghan police left their posts and the city remained without police. Taliban forces took charge of the city.

Abdul Majid, a Taliban force member, said he was on duty for many years along with other Taliban force members in Takhar province, and following the collapse of the former government he was assigned to maintain security in Kabul’s PD2.

According to Abdul Majid, hundreds of Taliban forces like him who previously were in the provinces are now maintaining security in Kabul.

"Now people are safe from robberies and other insecurity issues, and they should be happy about the security we have provided," said Abdul Majid.

Taliban forces currently stationed in Kabul do not have uniforms and some residents in the past weeks called on the Taliban to provide uniforms for their forces so the people will trust their authority.

Afghan police back to jobs in Kabul International Airport

[KhaamaPress] Taliban
...Arabic for students...
have invited border police of the previous Afghan government to return to their jobs in Kabul International Airport to work alongside them.

On Sunday, September 12 a number of the former border police were seen on their jobs in the airport alongside armed members of the Taliban.

Although the Islamic Emirate of Afghanistan has invited some civil servants across Afghanistan including those in customs, this is the first time that military officials of the former government are returning to jobs.

Traffic personnel, municipality staff, and school teachers are the only babus government employees who have not been bothered since the Taliban takeover.

Earlier, the ministry of finance had called on the staff of all customs to return to jobs lest they will be considered absent and will not be gotten paid.

In the meantime, officials of the Islamic Emirate of Afghanistan said that the finance ministry is working to pay the salaries of the staff of some ministries.

People are asking the Taliban to call on the former babus government employees to run their jobs as they were fully familiar with the governance and the digitalized system.
